When it is buzzing at top capacity— when, for example, installing that new light fixture requires both hands — the cells in those areas of the brain are turned on and secreting neurochemicals, such as dopamine and serotonin, which are involved in generating positive emotions. Neural connections are strengthened and reinforced.
